Trucking Companies in Idaho

During your time in the transportation industry, youve likely discovered that Idaho plays a pretty big role in the national trucking field. With shipments focusing on agriculture, natural materials, and manufactured goods, Idaho transportation companies have a lot that they entrust to skilled truck drivers.

Major changes in Idahos trucking standards and laws make this an excellent time to learn about local trucking companies and get involved.

One of the biggest sources of support and information for Idaho drivers is the Idaho Trucking Association. This group aims to strengthen the industry as a whole while helping individual members advance their careers and become the best drivers they can be.

All you have to do is look at recent news to see how important trucking is in Idaho. In the Twin Falls region, KMVT notes that lawmakers have proposed the creation of three new truck routes. This would increase intrastate and interstate travel, possibly allowing you to complete your routes more quickly.

In addition, Idaho has a law proposing an increase of the interstate trucking weight limits. If you are at least 21 years old and drive regional or OTR routes, this could permit you to take on larger loads and possibly increase your earning potential.

Across the board, you should find that salaries in this state are in line with those reported across the country. Currently, the average salary for an Idaho tractor-trailer driver is $35,900 per year (O*Net, 2015).
